The College of Science advances mathematics, physical sciences and life sciences and mobilizes curiosity-driven faculty and students who seek to enhance life on the planet through groundbreaking research.
CLEMSON – For the first time, Clemson University’s long-running Summer Scholars program is offering two Fall Scholars programs to be held Oct. 3 and 10 and Nov. 7 and 14. Three courses will be taught in Fall 2020: one in the October session and two in November. The courses will meet on two consecutive Saturdays […]
Clemson grad student Sydney Abrams and her mentor Leigh Anne Clark have identified new genetic factors contributing to small body size in dogs.
Clemson University scientist Matthew Koski’s collaborative research demonstrating that flower color has responded to rapid degradation of the ozone layer over the past 75 years was recently published in the journal Current Biology.
The resumption of in-person instruction is set for Monday, Sept. 21. As students adjust to new routines and physical distancing measures that have been put in place throughout campus, the availability of study space is naturally one of the most pressing topics. Study space capacities have been altered because of the need to reduce density […]
Trina Pham is a first-generation college student living on the rural outskirts of Mauldin, South Carolina, where she dreams of becoming the U.S. president’s chief advisor on science and technology. By the time she walks into the Oval Office, the big issues for Pham could include intelligent machines, humankind’s outpost on Mars and the discovery […]
Not one but two Clemson University College of Science graduates have been named to Chemical & Engineering News’ prestigious Talented 12 Class of 2020.
Amy Pope faces a challenge at the start of the semester: introducing physics – algebra-based physics, of all things – to more than 600 Gen Ed students and making sure they feel good about the semester ahead. It’s a teaching challenge Pope loves and has become successful at facing. So successful, in fact, that she […]
An engineer who has earned six patents in six years and a geneticist developing strategies to prevent tooth decay were named Researchers of the Year at Clemson University.
Clemson University researcher Barbara Campbell and her collaborators have received a five-year, $2.5 million grant from the National Science Foundation to identify the functional mechanisms of microbes that relate to the health of ecosystems.
Electrifying research by Clemson University scientists could lead to the creation of lighter, faster-charging batteries suitable for powering a spacesuit, or even a Mars rover.
CLEMSON – A chemist who uses miniature materials to make big discoveries is Clemson University’s top postdoctoral fellow in 2020. Mohamed Attia has been awarded the Clemson University Distinguished Postdoctoral Award, which recognizes outstanding performance in scientific research, leadership, advocacy, outreach and teaching. “I feel very honored and flattered to receive this honor. It’s awesome!” […]
CLEMSON, South Carolina – Should colleges and universities resume in-person classes for the Fall 2020 semester? This is a question that a Clemson COVID Challenge team of Clemson undergraduates began to explore back in late May 2020. The team was mentored by Sharon Bewick, an assistant professor in the College of Science’s department of biological […]
Clemson University researcher Rafael Mesquita and a multi-institutional research team documented “surfer waves” in the upper atmosphere that create a pipeline of energy between layers in space.
A much-needed renovation has given new life to the Clemson University Herbarium, which houses about 100,000 plant specimens that have been carefully preserved and stored for the future.
Three teams of researchers at Clemson University have joined forces to unravel some of the mysteries surrounding perovskite nanocrystals, which are semiconductors with numerous applications, including LEDs, lasers, solar cells and photodetectors.
